Occupying a swathe of the eastern coastline of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is one of those tropical paradise places that your mind imagines during long days at work. Azure waters, soft sand and low-hanging palm trees all give it that dreamy oasis feeling.
While it’s long days laying by the beach with a cocktail in hand that feature most prominently on to-do lists, there is so much else to discover and enjoy. Here are my top six things to do in Punta Cana.
1. Private Catamaran Tour
The turquoise waters of Punta Cana are perfect to enjoy by boat. With a private catamaran tour, you can enjoy the best snorkeling and swimming spots, as well as drop by hidden gems such as the beautiful Bavaro Natural Pool and special secluded beaches. On board, the food and drinks flow freely to add a certain glamour to the trip, although families can also be easily accommodated.
2. Bavaro Adventure Parks
Indulge your inner child with the non-stop fun of the theme parks just north of Punta Cana in Bavaro. Get the adrenaline racing with action-packed options including ziplining or bungee jumping at the Bavaro Adventure Park or enjoy a somewhat more sedate option and meet some intriguing and exotic creatures at the animal-themed Manati Park.
3. Scuba Diving in Bayahibe
Although Punta Cana offers many great snorkeling experiences, it is open water SCUBA diving that really gives you the exhilaration of diving into an incredible underwater experience. Be mesmerized by the colorful tropical fish or explore an eerie shipwreck off the coast of Punta Cana; no matter whether you’re an experienced diver or total novice, you’re bound to be amazed by the diving.
4. Private Colonial City Culinary Tour
Follow in the footsteps of Christopher Columbus and discover the sites of the first city in the New World, built in the 16th Century, while discovering delectable Dominican dishes. Savor the mouthwatering flavors and spices of traditional cooking while learning about local history and culture on your own private adventure.
5. Saona Island by Private Yacht
Travel in glamorous style to one of the most beautiful and secluded spots in the Dominican Republic, the mesmerizingly beautiful Saona Island. Located about 12km from the coast, this stunning island offers a chance to experience blue water and soft sand to rival Punta Cana, but without the crowds. On the boat, sip chilled champagne before disembarking to discover the gorgeous ocean and delectable natural pools.
6. Indulge in an Ultimate Relaxation Package
Punta Cana is for letting your worries be swept away by the tide as you rest and relax. For the ultimate in rejuvenating experiences, indulge in a blissful package that is good for body, mind and soul, featuring natural pools, delectable food and blissful massages. There’s no better way to find peace during your epic trip to Punta Cana.
